A surprisingly pleasant evening in Metrowest

Hoping to get a quick bit of exercise after work, we headed for the new Bruce Freeman rail trail (www.brucefreemanrailtrail.org) and parked at the current end point in Carlisle. Arriving in Chelmsford center, we found that the Brickhouse pizzeria (www.brickhousechelmsford.com but no info yet on second location) has opened after some fast and feverish work. They have a full bar and outside seating (Ruby was welcome on the deck). We ordered a few drafts and then decided why not dinner? Our Thanksgiving in a sub sandwich was enjoyable-- no premade Purdue® here-- store cooked turkey breast. The vegetarian calzone was pleasantly hefty and full of high quality ingredients. But the clincher was the owner coming over to our table and giving Ruby a big hunk of turkey, so that she wouldn't feel left out of our dining experience. Anyone else had a pleasant surprise lately in our neck of the woods?
